Before the season started, we had a thread in which posters predicted how the Pacers would do this year.
Needless to say, a lot of people have been surprised. The Pacers are on track to win 37 games. Far and away the majority of posters who mde a prediction thought the Pacers would do better than they are doing. On the other hand, a few people underestimated the team.
I invite you to discuss what has been different than you expected. Did you have too much faith in the bench? Did you expect the team to play without injuries? has the quality of the competition surprised you?
Put yourself on the spot here. If your prediction was way off base, please admit you were wrong and do some self-analysis. Have fun.
For simplicity, I've summarized all the predictions into four groups.
----- Posters who were ridiculously optimistic (45 or more wins) -----
Vince Neil, Speed, McKey Fan, Indy, Infinite MAN Force, Elgin56, Mal, odeez, aero, pacerfreak, naptown, Gyron, Moses, Bobby Mac.
